Ok, so what things count? I am horribly unorganized & have tons of papers & other 'important' stuff lying around. Does that stuff count? I mean if I counted every paper I'd be at 2008 in a month or so I started with this thread in Feb I think, but then I got off trach because I felt like I was cheating with some of the stuff I was counting.

maciascl - I really think it's up to you what you count. I don't usually count each paper - more like a handful or so, but it's a personal challenge, so..... Helpful, eh?

1 stained shirt - trashed
1 torn shirt - trashed

up to 647/2008 I got to thinking about how close I'd be to our goal if I counted everything we'd trashed.

Yaay! Is this thread a follow on of the 2008 April Challenge thread? Guess it doesn't matter if it's not, because I'm so thrilled I'll post anywhere.
2 footstools to Aged Care home
3 bags clothes to goodwill
6 cartons of treasure for someone/junk to me sold at Tender Centre and given cheque
1 antique hatbox full of old treasures for best friend who has a mini-museum she loooves....old old books that aren't all that beautiful but I'd hung onto for sentiment only... kind of ugly pictures so my grandaughters wouldn't want them, but they are over 50 years old so my friend will treasure them.
1 bag of DS's outgrown clothes gone to lady who is glad for any pass-on clothes.

One big carton under spare bed that I am filling as I continue to de-clutter... I find I get braver every pass through of the house.
One big bag for clothes that I'm also getting braver about.
DH's shed is still in the wings waiting, but he's getting more and more inspired as he sees me getting rid of stuff.

Wow ColoradoMama... It'd be fun to see your posts all put together... you are really on a purging roll. It's fun seeing what others are getting rid of.
Today for me to the Good Will:

4 old school dictionaries
1 brass vase
1 pair never worn slippers
2 sets tongs
5 old forks
2 old sleeping bags of DS's from when they were small
1 green bottle

2 dead pillows to trash

Yep, but good scary huh? :
Is your aim to get to 2008/2008.
I'm grinning here imagining getting to 2007 things and just not being able to find any more to de-clutter at all. What would you choose if that happens?
You're inspiring me.

Well, it's a good scary for me. I think my family's just getting scared!

I think I'm going to get to 2008 in May!
